I’ve always loved the look of a handmade scrapbook, and so when the big digital scrapbooking wave hit, I wasn’t too sure about it. However, when Stampin’ Up! came out with My Digital Studio and I saw how easy it would be to match all of my papers and embellishments to the digital layouts and create hybrid scrapbook pages, I started catching the wave too.
I bought MDS so that I could try to make headway with my wedding album (lets just say the photos and memorabilia have been in a box for the last 9 years). Well, I’ve been too distracted playing with other projects that the wedding album hasn’t happened. But here is an example of a layout I whipped up tonight.
I love this picture my mom took of my son during a recent visit and thought it would make a great page. I started with one of the built in photo layouts that had caught my eye and even though in the end I ended up moving everything around and deleting some of the photo spots, it actually was quick, easy, and fun to create this page.
(All of the elements I used on this page come by default with My Digital Studio)
Plus, have you heard? There is a My Digital Studio contest going on right now!
I figure this layout is practice for me so I can get some ideas to submit for the My Digital Studio Contest being run by Stampin’ Up! Create your best digital designs and you could win $400 in digital downloads for My Digital Studio!
